Baptisms for the week of 6-26-17

#1

Baptism of Martha and Rodrigo
One day a Sister took us to visit another family, my companion suddenly felt the need to contact Sister Martha, and she was carrying a water jug in the street. We offered to help and she told us that she was fine, but she accepted a visit for another day. They knew of God, Brother Rodrigo was a Catholic Priest, but seeing the wonders of the Gospel they decided to change their lives and accept a Baptismal date. Now they are preparing for their eternal Family and want their daughters to follow.

Baptism of Marilu Nava
Sister Marilu lived in Tijuana for a long time, there, her daughter knew a Christian Church and invited her to attend a church, because she knew her mother was Catholic but didn’t practice her beliefs. Her parents are members of the Church and they had invited her to listen to the missionaries, all of the sudden she decided to go to Church, there we met her and started to teach her. We realized that many missionaries had taught her but the challenge was that she was not married, we invited her to pray and ask our Father in Heaven to help her get married, so that she could be baptized. We supported her and we prayed with her and for her a lot. And this is how her prayer was answered, now she knows the truth, and has taken the most important step of her life.

Bautismo de Marilu Nava
Hna Marilu vivía en Tijuana por mucho tiempo, allá su hija conoció una iglesia Cristiana y le invito a que se acercara a una iglesia ya que ella era católica pero no practicaba sus creencias.Sus padres son miembros de la iglesia y le habían invitado a escuchar a los misioneros, de repente ella decidió ir a la iglesia y ahí le conocimos, le empezamos a enseñar. Nos dimos cuenta que varios misioneros le habían enseñado el desafió era que no estaba casada, le invitamos a que orar y le pidiera al Padre que le ayudara a casarse para que ella pudiera tomar un bautismo. Nosotros le apoyamos mucho y oramos mucho con ella y por ella! Y así lo hizo su oración fue contestada y ella ahora sabe que es verdad y tomo la decisión mas importante de su vida.
